Powerful Reflections on the Dignity of the Human Person from a Disabled Woman of Singular Talent

Sophia Institute Press
Jan. 13, 2020

BOSTON, Jan. 13, 2020 /Standard Newswire/ -- "I can't walk; I can't sit up straight; I can't feed myself. If you and I meet, the first thing you notice will be my body crumpled in a wheelchair. Once I could at least sit up, but now my weak neck is bent over and my spine bent so much that my head falls heavily upon my left shoulder and my hunched back."

So writes Christina Chase in her new book, "It's Good to Be Here." Crippled though she is, Chase's disabilities have led her not into bitterness, or despair, but rather into a profound and exceptional encounter with God's love itself.

Locked now for decades within her own fragile, helpless body, Christina has been graced with extraordinary insights into the similar helplessness of Jesus, the majestic King of the Universe, who, when born of Mary, became just like Christina today—unable to feed Himself or even lift His head. From that littleness – hers and His – Christina draws forth a wisdom that shows how we are all, as creatures, in one sense or another, paralyzed.

"None of us can exist apart from limitations and boundaries," explained Chase. "None of us can walk through life unaided. In the presence of God, not a single one of us can even stand. But out of infinite love for us, Jesus chose to join us in our littleness! He submitted Himself to the limitations of time, space and circumstance, even to His death on the Cross."

The inspired sufferer has assimilated this saving truth, which radiates from the pages of "It's Good to Be Here." The remarkable witness of wheelchair-bound Chase to Jesus's love for her communicates a stirring faith message that is elevated further by prose.

Despite her abject physical state, Chase's work provides a valuable lesson to any who would assume that such severe challenges automatically consign one to a life of gloom.
